Albania election – level 1

03-05-2021 15:00

Albania is a country in southeastern Europe. Communism ends in Albania in 1990.

People vote for 140 members of parliament last week. Around 3.6 million people come and vote. Everyone hopes that the election will be without problems. There are many problems during elections in the past.

Two main political parties are the Socialist Party and the Democratic Party. The socialist Party wants to make Albania a modern country. They want to help tourism and farming. The first results say that the Socialist Party wins.

Albania wants to become a member of the EU. The election is very important. It can have a big impact on when Albania will belong to the EU.

Difficult words: communism (a political system which says that everything belongs to everyone, not individual persons), member (when a person or a country is a part of a group or team), political party (a group of people in the government who have similar ideas).
